Your thoughts on prioritising Suffolk County Council services

Your thoughts on prioritising Suffolk County Council services

Suffolk County Council has launched a public consultation launched to find out where you place your priorities and how you feel about the way in which the council funds its services.

With local authorities continuing to respond to the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, global supply chain issues and climate change, the council is asking residents for their thoughts on helping the council prioritise its funding, alongside meeting the continuing costs of statutory care services.

Councillor Richard Rout, Cabinet Member for Finance and Environment, said: “I want to understand more about the areas you want us to focus on with the budget that we have left over after covering our statutory care duties. Whilst this may be limited, we continue to use every penny wisely to bring many benefits to Suffolk. As part of this engagement, we want to find out where people place their priorities and how they feel about the way in which we fund these services.”
